SANTA FE, NM – At first glance, little Ike the rambunctious three-year-old Shih-Tzu looks just like a child’s stuffed animal toy. But, he is very real and LOVES Better Made Snack Food’s BBQ Flavored Chips! This cute photo was submitted by Therese Donnell of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Therese and her husband lived in SE Michigan before moving out west, and still like to order sampler boxes from Better Made’s on-line store. For submitting the May 2021 winning pet photo, Therese and her husband will receive a freshly made sampler box filled with a variety of delicious Better Made Snack Food products.

Remember, Better Made encourages people to send in their most outrageous and/or cutest pet photo they can of their favorite pet, be it a dog, cat, goat, rabbit, bird, orangutan, frilled lizard, etc., and the funnier or cuter the better!

“He’s a cute little guy whose parents are originally from the “D”,” says Therese. “We live in Santa Fe, New Mexico now, but Better Made chips are our favorite snack. We love the pretzel rods, too! Ike is a fan of the BBQ flavor – he likes to keep it spicy. At Christmas time, our request every year is a sampler box from Better Made.”
